Promoting the translation of health and medical research that addresses diversity and equity

The NHMRC Research Translation Long Weekend 2022 will be a hybrid event, combining online presentations with in-person networking events. It will take place from Thursday 17 November to Tuesday 22 November 2022 (with a weekend break). Sessions will start at 12.00 noon AEDT (9.00 am Perth, 2.00 pm Auckland) and end by 4.00 pm each day.

Theme: Embracing Diversity

The intention is to encourage the translation of research that improves equity and respects the health and health care decision making needs of people of different cultures, ethnic groups, socio-economic groups, abilities or ages. It includes (but is not limited to) the implementation of research relevant to:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • People who live in rural and remote areas
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse communities
  • People living with a disability.


Abstracts are invited that are relevant to the theme and address one of the following topics:

  • Knowledge mobilisation: making information usable and accessible
  • Knowledge know-how: the skills and expertise needed to translate knowledge effectively
  • Impact evaluation: assessing the change that could be attributed to a particular intervention, project, program or policy
  • Implementation science: the methods used to promote the uptake of research findings.

Key features

The Symposium will be a hybrid event designed to minimise the impact of any changes in circumstance that may arise from new outbreaks of COVID-19 or other factors. It will:

  • consist of a combination of keynote / plenary, abstract and panel sessions, with face-to-face elements to enable local / regional in-person networking
  • include abstract presentations that will be available to view online 1 to 2 weeks before the Symposium
  • involve in-person satellite events in the capital city of each State and Territory.

Key dates and other updates will be published on the NHMRC Symposium website and in NHMRC Tracker .
